Scope and Content

The index provides reference to notices of location (mining claims), affidavits showing proof of labor on claims, and other mining documents. This index includes the name of the claim, the names of grantor and grantee (buyer and seller), type of document, document date, recorder's entry number, and the book and page number where the document was recorded.

Arrangement

Alphabetical by mining district, thereunder chronological by date filed.

Research Note

This index was microfilmed with the camera head upside down, and therefore the images are in reverse order on the reel. In order to read the entries in chronological order, a researcher will need to read the microfilm backwards.
